Weight Loss surgery is becoming more and more popular amidst the obesity epidemic that is spreading in today’s society. Mr Amirulhaq Khan FRCS, NHS Consultant and GMC Registered, is UK's leading surgeon specialising in surgery for weight loss and obesity.

Obesity surgery not only helps people lose weight but also improves their associated health problems and overall quality of life.

 

Surgery for Obesity and Weight Loss and Varicose Vein Removal

Leading NHS General Surgeon Dr AmirulHaq Khan specialises in gastric band and gastric bypass surgery. The gastric band is a silicone ring designed to be placed around the upper part of the stomach and is filled with saline. This creates a small stomach pouch above the band and reduces food storage area in the stomach. Endoscopic Intragastric Balloon is also used but your surgeon will discuss all options with you during the consultation.

Gastric bybass surgery restricts the gut and involves the use of gut hormones to induce and sustain long-term weight loss. Varicose veins treatments are also available at ReShape.

Obesity and Weight Loss

The Laparoscopic Gastric Band is the most popular weight loss procedure choice in the UK. Compared to other options, it is less invasive and ultimately reversible. Once the band is in place, it can be adjusted for faster weight loss, or loosened as required.

 

The gastric bypass surgery is a more invasive surgery that is usually recommended only if non-surgical treatments, such as diet, exercise and medicines haven't worked.

Varicose Vein Removal

Varicose veins are a very common condition. Women tend to be more affected than men, with approximately 30 percent of women developing varicose veins in their lifetime.

 

Varicose vein treatment aims to remove the pain and discomfort, and improve the cosmetic appearance of the leg. EVLT™ or Endevenous Laser Treatment of Varicose Veins is a minimally invasive method of treating varicose veins. The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic.
